Termites are a scourge to any home owner that has them digitalchic and sorry to hear you have them also. I think now after the 14K one year contract the guys doing the work are regretting ever setting eyes on our house, I don't think they really looked or realised how many infestations were on our land as well as a vacant block next door and the nests there as well. As for cost? Originally they wanted 16K but my better half haggled with them. Perhaps you could do the same or for that matter seek a second and third contractor to quote.Thanks for creating this thread. I am learning a lot. I have termites and molds in Tagaytay. They quoted me unbelievable cost for the termites extraction. 14K is way cheaper, mine was 55k for a 3 bedroom house and I don't trust they will do the work very well. T_T
Regardless the cost even if 50K, if you have these relentless little intruders spend the money and get rid of them. Remember also that while a 1 year contract is fine it won't end there, it will probably be ongoing as we expect here until we sell and someone else will have the problem.
Where are the termites on your property, land only or in the house? One neighbour here had all their kitchen cupboards eaten and destroyed only 4 years after they built their house, very expensive replacement. (difficult to monitor until it's too late)
We don't have a problem with mould or mildew and perhaps that is the salt air blowing through the house daily. Try anti bacterial type surface cleaners to remove and kill, again ongoing. In Australia we used damp buckets (moisture absorbers) especially in walk in robes etc.
Good luck waging war with the enemy, like any combat (seek and destroy) cost money, you will win in the end though.
